Sagittarius 7 ~ Allurement

Sagittarius 7° ~ Cupid knocking at the door ~ Keyword: ALLUREMENT

When positive, the degree is an insatiable appetite for enlarged experience and highly self-consummative intimacies, and when negative, self-exaltation and unbridled desire.

This is a symbol of the unimpeachable resources of life on the side of social self-renewals and psychological self-fulfillment. Implicit in the symbolism are the incurably romantic leanings of mankind, and the consequent willingness of the individual to refine or alter every aspect of his own being as a means for entering into self-quickening relations with others. He associates with his fellows and then breaks the ties he makes with them, but in time he achieves a spiritual integrity.

Sagittarius 6° “It’s something to chirp about.”

Sg 6

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 246

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-social-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 6° A game of cricket

This is a symbol of man’s insatiable desire to refine and strengthen every last potentiality of his own personal character and skills, and of his need to gain recognition for his success in this from each area of life in which he finds himself.  Here is his capacity for holding steady in any given milieu of confusion in which he may participate, and for bringing a measure of stability to every situation in which he may be involved. Man is here at his best when he is most seriously challenged to be himself, and to play his part in strict accordance with the rules.

The keyword is SPORTSMANSHIP.

When positive, the degree is exceptional competency in crisis, and when negative, false pretense to personal excellence.

Karigaari Ganpati playing cricket ~ Karigaari means to make something creative out of nothing.

“This is great. When does it start?” Groucho Marx after watching an hour of cricket play.

Cricket for Dummies

“It’s a lot like baseball. Except that it’s profoundly different.” Matthew Engel

So, what’s to be gotten from such nonsense as all this!

The Three Keys of Profundity:

1) Accept that superficial differences mask the essential truth.

2) Accept that both differences and similarities may still be operating on the same principle.

3) After grasping the similarities, perhaps you’ll start to understand and appreciate the differences.

Speaking of Crickets, how do they make that chirping noise?

False: They rub their legs together.

True: There is no insect that makes a noise by rubbing its back legs together.

Where did we get that idea then?

It’s just one of those weird fallacies that people cling to.

Consider: Snapple Real Fact #237:

The number of times a cricket chirps in 15 seconds, plus 37, will give you the current air temperature. Here are the Snapple Real Facts

Truth: Dolbear’s Law

Dolbear’s law states the relationship between the air temperature and the rate at which crickets chirp. It was formulated by Amos Dolbear and published in 1897 in an article called “The Cricket as a Thermometer.”

What Difference Does It make?!

Let’s just shake hands on it or rub legs on it, whichever you please… There now. That wasn’t so hard, was it?

“Knowledge is regarded by the fool as ignorance, and the things that are profitable are to him hurtful. He liveth in death. It is therefore his food.” Thoth, The Emerald Tablet III

Let us therefore die laughing! Care to play a game of cricket, old chap?

Sagittarius 5° “I’m not guessing! I know!”

Sg 5

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 245

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-physical-inspired.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 5° An old owl up in a tree

This is a symbol of the necessary element of steadiness in human affairs, and of the extent to which the demonstrated and wisely accepted values of life must have their full and functioning part in the immediate reality with which an individual may be seeking to come to terms. Here is the power of man to give an eternal stability or a universal compulsion to whatever seems to call to his own deeper and private potentialities. Emphasized especially is the real dignity of self-respect.

The Keyword is NORMALITY.

When positive, the degree is exceptional wisdom or effective self-restraint in each detail of personal accomplishment, and when negative, self-betraying intellectual and emotional smugness.

The Sword in the Stone https://youtu.be/ThOtoGV6ylU

Meet Zeus, the rescued, blind owl with starry eyes

“Owls have incredible camouflage talents; even at his new home Zeus continues to utilize his inbreed camouflage techniques. Many people have no idea Zeus is even in the room until someone points him out. If someone does notice the owl they often assume he is a stuffed animal because he so calm. Hahn says, “When he wakes and opens his eyes, people gasp. We have had people almost in tears when he reveals his peepers.”

The Things We Know: “One big medieval mess!” Merlin

The solution lies within the problem.

Do things seem a mess? Is the Gordian Knot still there refusing to be untangled, and you refusing to severe it from Zeus’s ox-cart? Must everything be so downright difficult?! Isn’t there some way to figure this confounded mess out without cheating, without regression, without giving up or giving in?

The Things We Don’t Know: “I told you, Archimedes, I’m not sure!” Merlin

Of function and circumstance and activity…

“The only difference between superstition and science is that the former knows, but does not know what it knows and so is never certain just what it is doing or exactly what it is to do with the signatures that have drifted into consciousness, whereas science refuses to know that which it cannot relate to what it already knows and which it cannot analyze or utilize with at least a degree of conscious direction. Knowledge is useless when it cannot be mastered, while mastery per se or trained abstract and unlimited intelligence is more or less independent of knowledge for the reason that it can find or create knowledge at will.” Marc Edmund Jones, Lesson VII Sabian Astrology

The Things We Don’t Know We Don’t Know: “Oh, pin feathers!” Archimedes

Why don’t you sit and think about it awhile?

“Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.” Albert Einstein

“The trained student is able first of all to summon out of memory the facts that he has placed therein efficiently enough or with organization enough to keep them in his conscious control, and then secondly he gains a sufficient grasp of the general perspective of knowledge to be able to go to the proper place to get any detail of fact he does not possess, and thirdly he knows how to ask questions and to make inquiry intelligently enough to get knowledge from new sources thus made available to him.” Marc Edmund Jones, Lesson VII Sabian Astrology

Sagittarius 4° “Slash through your Gordian knot.”

Sg 4

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 244

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-physical-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 4° A little child learning to walk

This is a symbol of the maximum possible encouragement of human personality on the practical or objective side, or of life’s continual stimulus to every potentiality of skill and character. Here is the universal fellowship which enables man to share the various privileges of his state with other members of his order. There is a constant rehearsal and perfecting of function through which the conscious being gains and strengthens its powers.

The Keyword is INDIVIDUALITY.

When positive, the degree is exceptional facility for entering experience on its own immediate terms while yet preserving the full genius of selfhood, and when negative, inability to take any real initiative.

Can You Feel the Love Tonight

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao-tzu

Alexander the Great

Mom Stacked the Cards in His Favor

Did you know that on the night before Alexander the Great’s mother was wed, she had a dream?

Plutarch writes: “The night before the consummation of their marriage, she dreamed that a thunderbolt fell upon her body, which kindled a great fire, whose divided flames dispersed themselves all about, and then were extinguished.”

What about Dear Old Dad?

Alexander’s father Philip looked inside his wife’s bedroom and saw her in the embrace of a snake. This was interpreted to be the god Zeus-Ammon, who was considered by some to have been Alexander’s father.

Royal Birth Brings Down the House

The temple of Artemis burned, according to tradition, on the night on which Alexander the Great was born. The Persian Magi foretold great disaster for the Persian Empire.

Plutarch on the Birth of Alexander: “Alexander was born the sixth of Hecatombaeon, which month the Macedonians call Lous, the same day that the temple of Diana at Ephesus was burnt… The temple… took fire and was burnt while its mistress was absent, assisting at the birth of Alexander. And all the Eastern soothsayers who happened to be then at Ephesus, looking upon the ruin of this temple to be the forerunner of some other calamity, ran about the town, beating their faces, and crying, that this day had brought forth something that would prove fatal and destructive to all Asia.”

Multiple Choice Quiz: Why Did He Slash Through The Gordion Knot?

1) He was Decisive: Why put off until tomorrow that which you can do today!

2) He was Impatient: Waste not want not!

3) He thought the easy-way-out was the best-way-out: A stitch in time saves nine!

4) He was frustrated: Life is too short to squander on Tom Foolery!

5) He didn’t focus on the knot, but beyond it: Seeing through obstacles to solutions!

6) He left the world a mystery to figure out: One of the world’s first gamers!

7) HiStory (dear old dad) + HerStory (dear old mom) = Heart Story: He didn’t come to start his mission, he came to finish it.

On the Shortness of Life

“It is not that we have a short space of time, but that we waste much of it. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca, On the Shortness of Life.

Sagittarius 3° “Progress through adversity.”

Sg 3

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 243

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-physical-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 3° Two men playing chess

This is a symbol of the self-confidence and authority which come to man through his refinement of skills and discipline of understanding, and of his capacity for mobilizing every potentiality of self at any point of challenge in events. Here is emphasis on the individual’s effective and profitable participation in a reality which he has been able to approach and master through the completeness of his perspective. His gift of concentration is his genius of self-fulfillment.

The Keyword is ABILITY.

When positive, the degree is high sensitiveness to every possibility of accomplishment or broadened self-discovery, and when negative, unsuspected bigotry or foolish exactitude.

The Hall of Fame ~ The Script 

All Things in Opposition

Or you can just take the easy road, zone out, pretend it doesn’t matter if there is progress or not. Anyone can “opt out”, but then you know how that turns out, right? Who do you get to look at in the mirror each morning? Just you. Your eyes. Your lying eyes. Your windows to the soul. Yeah, that will rat you out every time. You could do something about your progress, regardless of the outer pressure.

Seedling Struggles

Yeah, that little seed in the ground? It works its hide off just to push one tiny sprout up through the ground. No taking it easy in the plant kingdom. Those kids in dysfunctional homes—the ones who did something with their lives—they know what it takes to tough it out and then move on with their lives. Those kids on easy street? Not so much. Loafers. Resting on the family laurels. May be a tougher kind of situation to rise above than the dysfunctional one. Who knows? Life is all about choices, moves, strategy… Then, zugzwang, if you aren’t paying close attention. Then either surrender or play out the rest of the game as if you had a chance… A waste of time really. Time to face the facts. Pick yourself up and start all over again.

Does It Matter?

Only if it matters to you. Do you want to look back at your life and say, “Damn! If I’d only tried a little bit harder! Why was I so lazy, so nonchalant? Why didn’t I care more about me? Why did I let the adversity kill me?”

Not Every Nut Grows

If each did, why we’d just be one big tree-trunk planet! No! The only nuts that make it are those that… that what? What exactly do those nuts have that you don’t? Or, maybe you do have nuts like that! I don’t know. Check it out: Remember that the Mighty Oak was Once a Nut Like You! And never ever ever ever forget that at the end of the game, all of the pieces go back in the box. Life is a game. Make the most of it.

Sagittarius 2° “Nothing can stop what’s coming.”

Sg 2

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 243

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-physical-sensitive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 2° The ocean covered with whitecaps

This is a symbol of the unending availability of everything ever needed for life and experience, emphasized subjectively through the tireless anticipations of the human soul. Implicit in the symbolism is the necessity for giving direction to the restlessness of an over-all consciousness in which man’s immortal being is cradled, and for channeling this into a manifestation of personal energy. The individual prospers as he is self-quickened to his own potentialities.

The Keyword is IRREPRESSIBILITY.

When positive, the degree is an indomitable resourcefulness and a naïve delight in the problems of everyday living, and when negative, pointless irritability and nervous self-exhaustion.

“Whispering” Jack’s inimitable (and slightly cynical) rendition of the Akst-Davis classic “Baby Face” (1926) http://youtu.be/0TbRD0a0njQ

Baby Face, you’ve got the cutest little baby face, There’s not another one could take your place, Baby face, my poor heart is jumpin’, You sure have started somethin’, Baby face, I’m up in heaven when I’m in your fond embrace, I didn’t need a shove, ’cause I just fell in love, With your pretty baby face!

“Exalt not thine heart above the children of men, lest it be brought lower than the dust.” Thoth

State the Nature of Your Business

Karma/Dharma. Every time. It’s karma or it’s dharma. That’s what this 3rd dimensional, linear, cause-and-effect world is for. That’s the reason it is. It serves a purpose. We can work out our stuff here. We get what we bargained for. We learn to aim higher next time an old choice comes up afresh. So, if you’re going to do it—if you’re going to get the most out of it this time ‘round, which by the way was your intention when you decided to come, then quit fooling around and get to it. It won’t be pretty but it will be worth it. And you don’t get to rest for good until it’s all done, until it’s all made right, until it’s brought back into balance. You do get naps though. So, hope you’re rested up because here it comes!

Surf’s Up! Here Comes the Next Set of Waves!

Sagittarius 1° “It’s time to pass the peace pipe.”

Sg 1

The Span of Receptiveness – The 1st Hemisphere of Sagittarius

Phase 241

Fire Element – Mutable or Common

The formula is: manipulating-practical-original-specializing-physical-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Sagittarius 1° A Grand Army of the Republic campfire

This is a symbol of man’s continuing appreciation of every phase of experience that ever has opened up for him, and his desire to live worthily as a basis for every present or future well-being. Here is an emphasis on a subjective passivity of value to the individual as it becomes the inner strength by which he may sustain himself at critical points in his affairs. In his periodic and symbolical return to center he regrasps each special potentiality of his being.

The Keyword is REMINISCENCE.

When positive, the degree is accomplishment through the cultivation and preservation of enduring ties with others, and when negative, superficial idleness and unhealthy veneration for the past.

Those Were the Days My Friend https://youtu.be/QO9A9u4GyGc

Now Cometh the Peace that Passeth Understanding

Let me have a toke on that. Ahh! That’s a good one! I remember that! Here, I’ve got one for you…. And so it goes. We gather to remember good times and bad. We come here to bare our souls so that we can refill with resolve to go back out there again, knowing that always there will be these—these to whom we may return—to enfold us and reclaim us and remind us who we are. So, here’s to the good times. We’re in this together—for better or for worse. Let that, my friend, be our solemn vow!

Remember by Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,

Gone far away into the silent land;

When you can no more hold me by the hand,

Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day

You tell me of our future that you plann’d:

Only remember me; you understand

It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for a while

And afterwards remember, do not grieve:

For if the darkness and corruption leave

A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and smile

Than that you should remember and be sad.

Those were the days my friend

Pass the pipe this way again…

“It’s time to pass the peace pipe.” Namaste ~ Saijin

Scorpio 30° “I’m totally serious!”

The Span of Appreciation – The 2nd Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 240

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-generalizing-spiritual-inspired.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 30° The Halloween jester

This is a symbol of a proper informality in the release of the buoyant energies through which an individual gains refreshment, or is freed for the moment from life’s insistent demand on him that he live according to some ideal beyond his potentiality. The dignification of what often becomes an overbroad humor here serves its purpose by encouraging man to attempt new and various modes of contact with his fellows, and thus ultimately to achieve a more genuine spiritual sensitiveness.

The Keyword is SPONTANEOUSNESS.

When positive, the degree is a gift for making the desires and ambitions of self not only of interest but of actual value to others, and when negative, ineptness of self-expression and contempt for established values.

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true. The other is to refuse to accept what is true.” Soren Kierkegaard

My own reflections on today’s symbol are revealed in its seven-fold geometric model. Think of this as a sort of trick-or-treat outing. If you’d like to meet the Jester in its sacred 7’ness, come right this way! What? You don’t know where to go? Oh, well here are your choices: Would you prefer to read about it?

Snake Oil ~ Steve Earle  Are you buying what he’s selling? It’s been around for a long, long time

Tom Foolery and Counsel to the Monarch

“There are many stories which show a jester as the only person who could counsel a stubborn king, and as such the myth of the court jester suggests that jesters could act as a check on the whimsical power of absolute monarchy. . . .” An excerpt from Fools Are Everywhere – The Court Jester Around the World by Beatrice K. Otto http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/640914.html

Fool Me Once, Fool Me Twice

Regarding “perspective”, Soren Kierkegaard said: “It does not depend, then, merely upon what one sees, but what one sees depends upon how one sees; all observation is not just a receiving, a discovering, but also a bringing forth, and insofar as it is that, how the observer himself is constituted is indeed decisive.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B8ren_Kierkegaard

Scorpio 29° “We must work together now.”

The Span of Appreciation – The 2nd Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 239

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-generalizing-spiritual-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 29° An Indian squaw pleading to the chief for the lives of her children

This is a symbol of the stark sacrifices the self must make in the common interest and of the high responsibilities the group must accept for the welfare of each individual, as these factors together create a functioning society and enable man to control his everyday world. Here is emphasis on the give-and-take in human allegiances, and a call for a balancing of rights and wrongs as a result of direct experience with the problems of self-fulfillment.

The Keyword is EFFECTIVENESS.

When positive, the degree is personal accomplishment and satisfaction through an exceptional gift for holding first things first, and when negative, naïve willingness to truckle to others.

The Age of Aquarius https://youtu.be/kjxSCAalsBE

Of ourselves our strength is nothing.

Our strength is in the four manifestations…Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer;

Of ourselves our strength is nothing.

Our strength is in the four healings…Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio;

Of ourselves our strength is nothing.

Our strength is in the four landmarks…Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces.

If I had It to Do All Over Again

I wouldn’t do it alone.

Saved for a time such as this. We are in this together. It is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

“We must now work together.” Namaste ~ Saijin

Scorpio 28° “The gift of melodrama.”

“The gift of melodrama.”⁣⁣⁣

The Span of Appreciation – The 2nd Hemisphere of Scorpio

Phase 238

Water Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-universal-generalizing-spiritual-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Scorpio 28° The king of the fairies approaching his domain

This is a symbol of the eternal promise underlying all inner self-realization, since any actual fullness of life is altogether independent of the passing state of affairs in a world of time and space. Implicit in the symbolism is the futility of man’s common reliance on people and things through some mere accident of contact. Outer reality takes the form with which he endows it as he exercises his sovereignty over its various potentials in the creative realms of his own imagination.

The Keyword is ALLEGIANCE.

When positive, the degree is a special competence of inward vision and a consequent outward perspective of high effectiveness, and when negative, capricious self-indulgence.

Melodrama

The Victorian stage melodrama featured six stock characters: the hero, the villain, the heroine, an aged parent, a sidekick and a servant of the aged parent engaged in a sensational plot featuring themes of love and murder.

Often the good, but not very clever hero, is duped by a scheming villain, who has eyes on the damsel in distress until fate intervenes at the end to ensure the triumph of good over evil. Wiki

The Little Prince

“Why was the desert so lovely before? Why was it lovely but not anymore? Water was hiding; no one could see. But now the water is hiding in me.” Lyrics, The Little Prince musical

What a precarious position to be in—to be one so young and yet to be called upon to be representative of a higher law. In humility the Little Prince obeyed his heart knowledge that it was time to go home; yet, he also had to buoy up the adult friend who could not understand this rite of passage being undertaken.

A snake bite! The Little Prince was going to allow a snake to be his vehicle of death? Surely this young man does not understand the danger! Surely, as an adult, there must be intervention made!

Do not come; do not watch. It will be too hard for you to bear. This is not your path; it is my own. I have a rose and I must return to care for her. You will be fine. Follow your path. And when you look out upon the vastness of the heavens, then know—know most assuredly!—that there I will be tending to my rose. And I shall be happy. And you shall know me by my laughter. So, please, go and tend to your happiness. I long to hear your laughter, too.
